I’m giving you fair warning right now, the Desserts Sweets portion of Hong Kong contains 3 parts. Yes, that’s the amount of dessert I had. It was crazy and I realized after looking at all these pictures that I went a little mental with desserts. But hey, it was worth it. There are so many different kinds of desserts and so many places that offer them, I just had to have all of them! It’s true that girls have a separate stomach for desserts.
You must have seen this on someone’s Instagram if they’ve been to Hong Kong. Atum’s famous for their desserts that are made right in front of you. They use all sorts of liquids and interesting products in their desserts. It’s just an amazing experience. It’s cool to watch but it’s somewhat expensive and it doesn’t taste that amazing.
Also on Instagram often are cheese tarts from Bake. The line for these things were so long at the beginning of the trend but after a while the line died down. These cheese tarts are pretty good but also pretty expensive. They are half baked and half quite a strong cheese taste.
Bakery Café was in Central and close so we decided to just drop by for a few treats. The food was okay, there’s definitely better elsewhere.
One of the juice places that many Hong Kong people visit is Coconut King. They recommended it to me and I thought it was not bad. Good amount of coconut flavour and a good amount of thickness. Also it wasn’t too sweet.
There’s a craze of fusion in Hong Kong at all times. Recently there’s been a lot of places popping up with the egg waffles and ice cream trend like Eat With Me. But to be honest, the egg waffles were not crispy on the outside and eggy on the inside (wasn’t properly made) and the ice cream and topping made it way too sweet.
Another Instagram favourite was Elephant Grounds ice cream sandwich. We were there, I guess, on a bad day because the flavour we had was mango flavoured ice cream sandwich. It looked beautiful, but tasted very generic.
Egg waffles is a must eat when in Hong Kong but finding the right one is key. After walking around Kowloon for a while we decided on trying Feng Kee because of the long line in front. It’s always good to follow instincts because these egg waffles were not bad. They were crunchy on the outside and eggy and cakey on the inside. Also it was just the right amount of sweetness.
On Openrice, one of the must eats in Sham Shui Po was Kong Wo. This place is famous for its soy products such as soy bean puffs with tofu or its tofu bean curd. I had their bean curd and I personally thought it was not that good. It was smooth but lacked the bean curd flavour itself.
